I just wanted to say "Hey". I just traded my 1968 Firebird in to my classic car guy for 1972 Cutlass Supreme Convertible. It had one owner, 46k miles all documents and all original. It's really nice, very clean and straight. It's flame orange with white top and interior.

I was hesitant at first because my Firebird was a matching numbers frame off resto with 68k miles and was cherry. But now I can't wait to get my Cutlass. Hope to pick it up Friday, weather permitting. I'll post pics ASAP.

Hey Oldsguy, isn't Lees Summit just west of KC? This guy lists near KC area. I can't remember since I no longer travel that area for work, Blue Springs....

Hi, and welcome to the forum. Sounds like you gave up something big, for something you're unsure about. I'm sure the Olds will win you over. Looking forward to the pics. If you have any doubts, I can send you my address, and I'd be glad to test drive it for you. LOL. Congrats, and best of luck with the new ride. You're at the right place if you have any issues with the car.

Thanks for all of the responses. My Firebird was great, but the Cutlass is my baby now. I may be moving in to the garage to save wear and tear on the door hinges from the hourly gawking. Now I just can't wait for spring.

need shop manual for 67 cutlass 330

New to site... I have a 67 Cutlass Supreme Convertible. Had a 2 barrel carb and intake that was switched out with an Edelbrock performer intake and quadrajet 4 bbl. Going to be adding a new comp cam (260h), lifters, springs, timing chain and gears this weekend... Any expert advice or things any of you have run into ref cams? I am unable to find a shop manual as well. Any help would be appreciated. ***HEADERS: Can't find them... any help other than "custom" would be helpful. Thank you. Joe.
Car has been in the family since day one, and all #'s match.

If you want to add a pic of the car then when you post a response and open that new window , down under that window you will see ' manage attachments " button. Click on that button and browse your computer for a picture. When you find that then open it and don't forget to click on the upload button. That should help ya out.

pics 101

When you reply make sure you are in “Advanced” If it says post a “Quick reply” hit “Advanced”

Scroll down below the box you type in and hit “Manage Attachments” A new box will pop up.

Hit “Browse”

The hit “Upload” and wait a few secs for the pics to up load. Then close this box.
Next you can hit “Preview Post and your pictures should be there.

There is a size limit on pics

Introduction

Hello everyone. I'm new here starting today. I just purchased a 67 Delta 88 convertable that I will be restoring with my 11 year old son (and wife) after I get it back to Wisconsin from Washington. Wife allowed with one rule - had to be a convertible.

This is my first Olds so I have a lot of specifics to learn but look forward to it.

Thanks,
Dave

Another Neewbie

I just wanted to say hi , I'm a neewbie too. I'm not sure if I'm posting properly but here goes ,My Dad and I have just bought a 57 super 88 Coupe that really doesn't look like much at the moment but we're hoping to get it back to near enough to original the best we can over the next few years. I'm here to learn all I can and have been reading others posts for a while as a guest and am thankful for the things I've learnt already.
